Mexican Bean Salad

The Menu:
Mexican Bean Salad

The Original Recipe:
We are having Grilled Chicken Quesadillas tonight, and I wanted something different to go with them. I love this recipe. It's like a 3 Bean Salad and a Salsa (which I have different versions, but I don't have my all-time favorite on my blog, yet!) all in one. It's so fresh and yummy. I could seriously eat, just this, for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
